Discussion: Connecting and Disconnecting Online

Post a response (at least 200–300 words) to the following:  

How might professional  social networking   assist you in meeting your own goals and building mentor relationships? Use social  media   to find a working professional in the same field as you are hoping to enter or currently advancing within.  What things can you learn from their profile?  Are there things you would like to strive toward?  Do you have any new thoughts about the field or your own goals after looking through this  virtual   profile?


Based on the “How to find a career mentor more easily” resource, discuss a tip you could immediately implement to begin building mentor relationships.

  Assignment 1: Put Your Best Profile Forward

  Option A. Evaluate Sample Profiles

You will review sample student profiles, evaluate and make recommendations for improving them.

·         Review and critique at least two of the sample online profiles using the ‘Professional Profile Guidelines and  Rubric document-Option A’ that can be found in this week’s  Learning Resources .

·         Explain in detail your scoring for both profiles By Day 7

Submit   a 1- to 2-page written review and critique of the profiles. If you were the hiring manager who reviewed these two profiles, would you hire the candidates? Why or why not? Make sure to reference the scoring  rubric   in the Professional Profile Guidelines and Rubric document and to make specific recommendations about how the profiles could be improved.

  Assignment 2: Weekly Journal Entry

The objective of this Assignment is to provide you with a private place to think on the page; “thinking on the page” is a phrase used to describe writing as a form of thinking. Some of us process our thoughts out loud as we describe them to others. In an academic environment, you will be asked to record your ideas in writing or “thinking on the page” to show the new knowledge that you’ve acquired through reading and listening to the resources and completing the assignments. The  journal   is not a formal type of writing and only you and your Instructor will see the journal entry.

The weekly journals will be used to develop a personalized academic writing plan that will fit into the Week 6 Personal Success Plan Assignment.

Each  journal   must be  at least three  paragraphs long, but you are allowed to write as much as you would like. These entries are meant to be free writing, but you should revise before submitting. Your  journal   entries will be graded on participation and do not have rubrics.

To prepare for writing your   Journal   entry:

·         Review the Montante article in the Week 3  Learning Resources .

·         Review the Academic Writing Expectations Checklist to guide your writing.

·         Review sample  journal   entries posted in an Announcement.
